Edwards Lifesciences (EW) announced that the company has reached an agreement with Medtronic (MDT) to settle all outstanding patent litigation between the companies, including cases related to transcatheter heart valves. The agreement will result in the dismissal of all pending cases or appeals in courts and patent offices worldwide, and includes a provision that the parties will not litigate patent disputes with each other in the field of transcatheter valves for the eight-year duration of the agreement. Under the terms of a patent cross-license agreement that is part of the settlement, Medtronic will make a one-time payment to Edwards of $750M. Additionally, Medtronic will pay Edwards quarterly license royalty payments through April 2022. These payments will be based on a percentage of Medtronic CoreValve sales, subject to a minimum annual payment of $40M. Edwards will contribute $50M from the settlement to the Edwards Lifesciences Foundation to support efforts to improve patient care, raise disease awareness and educate clinicians, such as through its Every Heartbeat Matters philanthropic program.
